“Cold Buffet”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Arrived late on Saturday so tried the breakfast buffet in the Chinook situated in the Banff Park Lodge. Very disorganised layout for the food and unfortunately the "hot" buffet was at best tepid. Not good value.

“Great evening buffet deal (2 for 1) on until Easter'13”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Price was great- $22 - and the spread and quality of the Friday seafood buffet was exceptional. Also did the Sunday brunch. Price was a little more but well worth it. Chinese buffet on Monday and Southwestern on Thursday.

Superb selection with every taste imaginable. Need to have a reservation in order to eat. I would highly recommend this to everyone as the town of Banff attends this brunch

“Very nice breakfast buffet”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is the hotel cafe (Banff Park Lodge) and the breakfast buffet was one of the nicest I've seen. Lots of variety from fruit and cereals to eggs, pancakes and french toast.

Constantly re-stocked and good quality food.
